Cyclist.ie is hosting a talk by Joachim Hochstein who is Cycling Officer with the City of Frankfurt on Wednesday 18th September at 20:00h in the Carlton Hotel, Tralee, Co. Kerry. (and in Dublin on the 19th September at 19:00h at Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin.)
“Frankfurt’s Way: What Irish towns & cities can learn from the German experience in cycle advocacy”
The talk takes place during the Kerry Bicycle Festival and EU Mobility Week [http://www.mobilityweek.eu/], which runs from Mon 16 to Sun 22 September. Sadly no Irish city or town subscribes to the Charter. The Goethe Institut Irland is sponsoring the event. Poster
Besides being Cycling Officer for Frankfurt, Joachim has been involved since 1994 in the German ADFC (equivalent to Cyclist.ie) and is vice-chairman of the State Association Hesse for 10 years. He will report on the experience of cycling in Frankfurt and environs from the perspective of the ADFC. He tells us that the cycling office closely coordinates with the ADFC. As Dublin is poised to really move forwards with its cycling provision the talk will be timely in the context of the launch of the NTA’s Cycle Network scheme for the GDA this week.
The talk will be of interest to cycling activists, students and staff involved in planning, logistics, roads and traffic and citizens who wish to create liveable cities, etc.
Thinking about driving from Cork to Tralee (and back) that evening if anyone wants to share the petrol.
